Came of age as tricky Dick separated USD from gold and poofed the petro dollar. Today, in my seventh decade, and able to write, I was fortunate to report on what interested me; silver & gold and critical resource mining, and the people in the shadows of the head frames with skin in the game. Capitalism is a favorite power tool though it doesn't cut it like it used to. Proponent of sound money, actual free markets, and long walks on the beach. Motto: buy and hold physical silver. Inactive of late because I don't advocate buying stocks - of any kind, but that's just me. Wishing everyone peace and prosperity in the times ahead.
